Welcome

The Earth Sciences and Resources Institute was created in 1973 to conduct applied research and service in environmental geosciences, engineering and computer applications. ESRI-SC is an extramurally funded institute within the University of South Carolina. Our mission is "the scholarly pursuit of earth science-related applied research and service in support of the overall research, service, and teaching mission of the University of South Carolina. We provide integrated solutions to challenging geoscience and envrionmental conservation issues by maintaining a dynamic ensemble of core technical capabilities while offering student training and mentorship through work study and graduate research opportunities".

ESRI-SC's capabilities related to government and private sector sponsored environmental studies and services include integrating geology, hydrology, and geochemistry with advanced computer applications for characterization of groundwater and surface water systems, water quality assessment, prediction of flow and solute transport, state-of-the-art environmental geophysics, and advanced geographic information systems development. Our applied research focuses on both site specific and regional scale projects that involve field, laboratory, and modeling activities. Further, ESRI-SC has extensive capabilities and experience conducting watershed studies, analyzing conservation efforts and best management practices, and developing user-oriented software solutions to a wide variety of natural resource problems.

Director: Dr. Camelia C. Knapp
